The loss of a loved one in a motorcycle accident is a devastating event. While nothing can bring your family member back, the civil justice system can hold the at-fault driver responsible.
Fatal Motorcycle Accident Attorneys in San Mateo
At the law firm of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos, our San Mateo fatal motorcycle accident lawyers help surviving family members deal with the financial burden of a wrongful death. We will act fast and work diligently to protect your family’s interests at every stage of the legal process.
What is Wrongful Death?
A death is considered wrongful if it is caused by the fault or negligence of another party. Even though the party may not be subject to criminal charges, a civil court can still be making a finding of responsibility and award compensation to the family members for damages such as:
- Medical bills incurred prior to death
- The victim’s pain and suffering
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of parental guidance for a child
- Loss of financial support
While police reports usually assign fault for an accident, those reports are not the final word. If you contact our lawyers soon enough, we can make a thorough investigation of the evidence such as skid marks, witness reports and auto black box records to find out what happened.
As wrongful death motorcycle accident lawyers who have handled numerous motorcycle accident lawsuits in the San Francisco area, we can tell you that police reports are often biased against motorcyclists. We will make sure that the victim’s story is told by reconstructing the accident based on evidence.
